a new sundress . . .

Since Elayna's the oldest, she's been in need of some new summer clothes. And since my gals love to wear sundresses, and they're pretty easy to whip up, off to the sewing room we went. Elayna picked out the fabric, ribbon, and approved of the pattern. We had to add the ruffle and headband at her request and she was quite happy with the finished result.

Camping 2008

We just spent three days camping with great weather and great friends. The kids had lots of buddies to play with and can't wait till next time.

Our littlest munchkin

I was trying to get her to play peek-a-boo but she was more interested in my sunglasses. She is trying to say "peek-ee-boo" though if you listen for it.

indoor beach

We had some beautiful sunshine this morning and I could not convince my girls to play outside. Instead they decided to strip down, put on some "beach attire" and sunbathe indoors. They had to have their juice because they were "SO HOT!" and I was not allowed to stand in their water (the carpet). It must be Friday the 13th . . .

I've been going back and forth on growing Elayna's bangs out for some time now and after seeing this tutorial recently - I decided to try grow them out after all. So far, so good. She loves the headband and says it feels comfortable. She even modelled it for me.

A little dress

Ever since I saw this dress while blogging one day, I just had to make that pattern. And thanks to the new way I've been gathering and my serger, it was really quick to make. I made it in a size 2 with longer sleeves so Alyssa can wear it in the Fall to church. So it's a little big for now but she loved trying it on for me anyways. Now to make some coordinating items for it . . .

Summer dresses

Nap times were productive for sewing this week! These will be the girls Sunday dresses for awhile. I'm hoping to get some better pics of the girls in these dresses and a family pic next week (thanks to my sis).
